Romain Grosjean says that Lotus had a good race at the Malaysian Grand Prix and he has elected to take the positives performance of Lotus F1.

At Sepang, Frenchman – who was spun off by Sergio Perez during the race and he finished just outside the top 10, while teammate Pastor Maldonado was forced to retire from the race at Sepang.

“Generally it was a good weekend with strong performance through the qualifying session, however in the race things didn’t quite work out the way we wanted,” Grosjean said.

“There are still a lot of good positives we take to the next races and when it all comes together it’s going to be very nice.”

“It’s quite a particular circuit where it is not always easy to find the right setup and the temperature can also be cold,” he explained. “You never know what to expect, except that there will be a monster traffic jam to get to the circuit!

“I scored my first Formula 1 points at Shanghai in 2012 and scored points again in 2013 so let’s hope that’s a good omen. Certainly, we’re better placed than when we last visited the track.”

Grosjean says that Ferrari’s Malaysian GP victory was good for F1, he expects Mercedes to be way out in front once again in China.

“It was good to see Ferrari win in Malaysia and I think it was good for Formula 1,” the Frenchman said.

“They worked well in Malaysia and I think they’ll be a force in the hot races. I think China should play more to the Mercedes but we’ll be fighting to do our best and present a challenge too.” (GMM)
